    Great food, service, easy-to-get-to location. I'll definitely go back, especially when an East Bay seafood, water-view restaurant is the focus. I'd rather go to Quinn's than Jack London Square!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/25/2008
    A family with three small children were oblivious toward them as didn't realize they overstayed their dining experience by about one hour. They allowed the 3 kids to play in the middle of the dining room, throwing themselves down on the ground, etc. It finally ended with one of the boys wailing when he got thrown down too hard. It is a shame when families ruin other diners' experiences... but even more of a shame when the management does nothing to rectify the situation. A special occasion was really dampened with this unfortunate experience ( and I had requested not to be near children! I love kids, but there is a time and a plce for everything. I get enough of that type of ambiance at my corner park).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    I hadn't been to Quinn's in a few years, but it was as wonderful as I remembered. We were out to celebrate a friend's birthday and there was such a terrific selection for our vegetarians to our serious meat eaters. The service was just perfect and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We ate in the more formal downstairs, but I recall good times in the upstairs for a more casual atmosphere. I don't recall the last time that everyone in our group cleaned their plates, and made room for dessert and coffee, and managed to polish that off as well. The portions were large and delicious!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the lovely view of sunset and sailboats immediately outside the window. Most tables have a wonderful view of the water. Our server, Barbra, was attentive, fun and accurate. Great idea to have 'mini-desserts' that allow that bite of sweet even though one has had more than enough to eat. Our appetizer: smoked trout would have made a great entree--delicious, unusual and satisfying.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/12/2008
    We've eaten at Quinn's many times and usually liked it pretty well. But our last visit soured us. We were seated so close to another table that we could not have a conversation, and worse, the two priests at the other table discussed topics that deeply offended us. We felt trapped. The food was very late, the chicken was dry, potatoes dry. To top it off, our check was erased so they recreated it and our bank account was charged twice. A negative experience all around.

The Food was great and came out very quickly steaming hot and fresh. Quinn's has never disappointed me and continues to impress. I intend to make this place our corporate hang-out in the future.

    Server ok, waited a long time for another drink. Almost thought we would be finished with our dinner before she finally brought it to our table. Also took her a long time to bring us our bill. Restaurant was not busy at that time. Food a little expensive so we only visit on special occasions.

    The location is very nice and the food was good, but it took well over 1hr for the food to be served for only 2 people. Not real great service from the kitchen. I would not recommend it because the service was so poor. Maybe this was just a bad night in the kitchen??
